As a high school athlete I was recruited by Coach Carr. It was an honor to play for one of the greatest men I have ever known and for the greatest University in the world. I learned so many lessons from coach but the greatest may be the importance of family. Family will always be there for you in any situation, good or bad. I was blessed with a great family at birth, and I have been blessed with an even bigger family at the University of Michigan. They have all celebrated my successes and are the first to step up in times of need. From teammates and coaches to faculty and support staff, they will always be members of my family. No one has had a bigger impact on the Michigan family and Mott's Children's hospital than the Carr Family. I am very fortunate to be able to assist in some small part to their mission of finding a cure and battling DIPG. Please join us in our fight against DIPG by supporting The Chadtough Foundation.
